Leave the console alone, and be ready to click yet to install.
Probably a long time.

It took about 40 mins for me.

Read a book, eat some food, or rob a bank.

It took around 8 hours for me, on 120mbit.
Depends where you are etc.
NoE seem to have cheapened out on servers, pretty much everyone I know has taken more than 4 hours.

Lol that brought back the pass.
When i was younger i was playing mgs 1. Been playing it for a while and didnt save because if you beat it withoit saving you get stuff.
Well made it to the last boss.
Then here comes my mom. Said her socket in her bathroom stop working and she was going to flip it.
Me : ya ya im playing this game.
Bam power goes out. No no no no, 5hrs down the drain.

Lol idk why but when you said wht u said it reminded me of that
